Injuries Caused by Lithium-Ion Batteries

Virginia Product Liability Lawyers – (855) 880-8163

When a lithium-ion battery – also called a li-ion battery or just a lithium battery – is improperly manufactured or poorly designed, it could become defective. In many circumstances, the defect can be so severe or cause such a catastrophic failure of a product that the consumer suffers serious injuries and damages.

Defective lithium-ion batteries have been linked to the following damages:

  • Burns: The most common failure of a defective battery is overheating to the point the battery and whatever equipment it is within bursts into flames. Depending on the size of the lithium battery, the resulting flames can be strong and hot enough to cause severe burns.
  • Electrocution: A defective lithium-ion battery can short-circuit electronic components and devices. If the equipment housing the battery is not well insulated, there exists the possibility that the individual using it could be electrocuted.
  • Property destruction: A secondary consequence of a lithium battery bursting into flames is the destruction of nearby property. There have been news reports of fires started by lithium batteries causing large-scale damage to entire households.

Have you been seriously injured by a defective, short-circuiting, or flammable lithium-ion battery? Did the resulting havoc destroy your property? You should be compensated by the negligent product manufacturer.

Due to its usefulness, lithium-ion batteries of various makes and models are used in countless day-to-day products. While any one of these products could become hazardous if the battery inside is defective, there have been a few in recent years that have caught the attention of news headlines.

A few products that have caused serious consumer injury due to a defective battery are:

  • Hoverboards
  • Cellphones and tablets
  • Power tools
